2009 Maison Ilan Charmes-Chambertin Aux Charmes Hautes Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir

3 hours in the decanter

Color- dark, slight purple brown.

Nose- ripe fruit, rich, with slight floral touch. Very good fruit mixture with a touch of Cali pinot twist to it.

Taste- did not match the nose. Red and some dark fruit. Very good acidity backbone mixed very well with the fruit blend. Medium bodied. Some texture. Medium tannins. Good length and slight bitterness on the finish.

6 hours in the decanter, last pour.

Nose- much more expressive than previously. Cali pinot twist was gone.

Palate- Same flavor profile, but much more balanced and toned down. No bitterness on the finish.

2011 Maison Ilan Volnay 1er Cru Les Robardelles Pinot Noir

Barrel sample. My favorite of the 1er crus. Pretty ruby red. Elegant red fruit and spice. Perfect balance of fruit, acid and tannin. All the parts are there to make me think this wine should just get better and better. Glad I bought a case.

    very glad to hear that you enjoyed the 11 Volnay 1er Cru Les Robardelles. We indeed have the same vineyard for 2012. It is "Les Corbeaux" in Gevrey-Chambertin which we will not have in 2012
